Volunteering For Rape Crisis North East
Volunteer Today! There are many ways in which you can make a difference! We know that your time is very important to you and we appreciate any time you can offer to assist us in supporting those impacted by sexual violence.
Some of the ways you can help are through volunteering your time to assist us in fundraising events, awareness events as well as offering your time directly to those impacted by sexual violence by providing confidential support on our Freephone helpline.
Due to the sensitivity and confidentiality of the work we do with and on behalf of survivors of rape & sexual violence, we do require staff supervision and training for anyone who wishes to volunteer as a helpline counsellor with our agency.
